Title

[D8816AAY], Letter from Nellie Marion Edison (Mrs W.A. Poyer) to Thomas Alva Edison, November 5th, 1888

Editor's Notes

I write you to know if it would be possible for you to send me one of your new speaking Phonographs and if perfected a Phonograph Doll. I have been besieged by my friends here to make this request of you. This, the Western Reserve is the most intelligent and cultivated part of this and still they have never seen a Phonograph. The ladies of the Presbyterian Church are preparing for a large fair or festival before Christmas, and are decorous of having this their greatest attraction. I almost shrink from addressing you, requesting such a gift as you know I am entirely ignorant of any Company arrangement or expense of one. [---] therefore [---] the Inventor, Manufacturer and my uncle, I took the liberty of writing you.
